  • I would go with the doc. Only because this way, you know you won't be forced to have it early. LOL

  • Sounds like the website is right,lol idk maybe he is confusing you w/someone else but then again that is impossible because he reads your chart.Have you brought it to his attention?

  • When did you ovulate? That will tell you when your 40 weeks is.
    Why does your OB say 32 but you have a EDD of Oct 22? Was there an ultrasound done that told him your EDD was different than first suspected?

    It could be something really simple, like he accidently mixed up your chart or your date or it was a slip of the tongue.
    Definitely speak to him at your next appointment!!

    Your body is right, no matter what. When your baby is ready and you go into labor, THAT is your Due Date. :)

  • I did bring it up at my last appointment..and he was like "yeah 32 weeks" and i said but my due date is oct 22... and he said "yes it is... " and he just responded if you have contractions or your water breaks just go to the hospital..

  • Then I'd say your EDD is more accurate and your OB just made a mistake. You need to speak with him at your next appointment. While It is a good thing your Doc might think you are not as far along as you really are (means less chances of him pushing induction) 5 weeks is a bit much! He might think you are in premature labor when in fact you are not.

    Good Luck

  • Sounds like maybe he was a bit confused. Just go by your first ultrasound.
